Amitabh Bachchan is one of the most famous and favourite actors in Hindi cinema. The beginning of this popularity can be traced back to the film ‘Zanjeer’, released 50 years ago. This film gave him the image of the ‘angry young man’. What was happening back then that people liked this film so much? Why is this film and its ‘angry young man’ relevant even today? Senior journalist Nilanjan Mukhopadhyay had a special conversation on this topic with Susmita Dasgupta, who has done her research on Hindi cinema and its social concerns from Delhi’s Jawaharlal Nehru University and has also written a book on Amitabh Bachchan.
